April A-Z Challenge 2013

Two days ago I was certain I would sit this April out; today I decided I would kick myself if I did.

Last year my theme was Beautiful Things, and I picked 26 things that I consider to be worth calling beautiful. I'm taking a different approach this year.

I'll wrap up my first year teaching creative writing this May, and I have challenged my students to do many things with their writing and thinking. This blog challenge is my way of modeling creative writing.

It's in that spirit that I'm going to attempt to write one short story in 26 posts. I'll tie in the successive letters of the alphabet by using them as the first letter of each post.

Come along for the ride!

What a great idea, one story told over 26 days, I'll be following - and I wouldn't going back in time and checking out your beautiful things post from last year too.

I'm glad you decided to participate too. I felt like I'd really accomplished something last year and have been looking forward to 2013 A to Z. I never dreamed I would be blogging about family stories. We never know what A to Z will bring out of us. In fact, I think you should assign A to Z to your students if you teach creative writing. A great assignment for next year. Think about it!
